United Renewable Energy (URE) and New Energy Equity have completed three community solar projects in Minnesota. The projects, located in North Branch, Lindstrom, and Cokato, total more than 4.3 MW and are now available to subscribers.
URE was responsible for the engineering, procurement, and construction on these projects. “We are focused on providing the safest, highest quality, and lowest overall cost solar and energy storage installations. This portfolio of projects with New Energy Equity is a great example of a successful partnership that provides ongoing benefits to the host communities and subscribers,” said Keith Herbs, Executive Vice President of URE.
Kenyon Energy will supply permanent financing for the projects.
New Energy Equity developed the three community solar gardens. “We are proud to be a leading developer in Minnesota’s ongoing transformation of its energy system toward cleaner and more cost-effective energy, helping the State and our solar garden customers to all achieve their respective sustainability goals,” says Matthew Hankey, President and CEO of New Energy Equity.
In addition to these three successful projects, the URE and New Energy teams have collaborated on a pipeline of additional Minnesota community solar projects that will be constructed in 2021 and 2022 that will support additional construction jobs and low-cost, clean energy for the region.
